Roofing materials delivered

Report and photos by Dennis Casebier

It was 37 degrees on the front porch at 6:30 AM with a VERY strong wind out of the northeast, likely in the 40 MPH range. Right now it is about as bad as I've seen.

I stopped at the job site and talked with Dan. He and his crew are finishing up boxing in under the eaves. I expect they'll be gone mid-afternoon. Then the whole crew won't be back next week. They are mostly done with the outside. It doesn't appear that the stairs will get done today.

Dan said someone will be here next week to finish painting on the underside of the eaves and and touchup around the windows and elsewhere. Electrician Fred Compton is scheduled to be here on the 25th. Dan says after that will be the "combo" inspection. That's a big one.

The roofing just arrived! The delivery vehicle has a conveyer belt thing so the material can be positioned on the roofline of the Freight House. Nothing will be done with it today because the roofers aren't here and it's too windy. Dan is hopeful the roofers will come next week.
